If you are an Entrepreneur or have an organization that is interested in the environment here is an opportunity to get involved in a multi billion dollar industry and make a meaningful contribution to your community South Africa, as a 3rd world country has had a lot of experience with basic sewerage treatment, as the country expands its infrastructure and population movement to the cities the demand on our sewerage works and basic sewerage systems has increased dramatically.
With this background combined with 1st world technology under the guidance of world renoun Enzymologist Dr P Celliers, it is not difficult to understand how our research and technology has over the past 20 years developed and refined natural, environmentally friendly formulations which now rate amongst the best in the world for quality, activity and more than competitive pricing.
Our enzymes and non-pathogenic bacteria conform to ISO 9001 and 9002; They are approved by the South African Medical Research Council and certified non-pathogenic. The FDA in the USA does not require registration of Sannitree products. Environmentalism is high on the Cape Town authority’s agenda, as the city encapsulates one of the world’s most sensitive botanical areas with a host of unique flora, as well as sensitive waterways. At the same time the city is one of the fastest-developing areas in the world with a rising demand for environmentally- sensitive waste disposal needs.
SANNITREE is a world leader in the development and use of a unique natural waste disposal process which is not only safe but also avoids environmental pollution. Our product range – marketed under the name of Sannitree – are used extensively in South Africa – as well as in numerous European, Latin-American and Eastern countries, the South Africa enzyme formulations are helping create an environmentally-sound world.
Introduced 25 years ago by Cape Town entrepreneur, Mike Mayne, these formulations are in line with current legislation designed to keep the environment pollution-free. “Right now there’s a biotechnological revolution and the enzyme-based waste disposal treatments are nature’s strongest weapons in keeping the environment clean. The world is fast becoming environ-conscious. Many countries are passing legislation and/or imposing fines for irresponsible discharge of organic waste into sewerage systems and rivers.
“Worldwide the commercial cleaning industry already does $12 to $15-billion in sales annually with 8-10% growth. Enzyme-based waste disposal processes are making rapid inroads into this budget – at the expense of the inefficient and pollution-encouraging chemical methods.
This has now opened an exciting market for the treatment of organic wastes in a 100% environ-friendly way. It is time we woke up to the fact that there is a vast need for social responsibility to assist in preventing this spread of disease. Not only that but also many countries are legislating against chemical treatment of wastes in portable toilets before being disposed of into sewerage systems so bio-enzyme formulations are becoming more and more in demand.”
It is not surprising then that enzyme-based products are now being exported to many developed and developing countries as an efficient way of dealing with waste. They have proven to be the answer in First & Third World situations, being natural, they cause no pollution and are 100% environmentally-friendly. They contain non-pathogenic bacteria and enzymes that are harmless to people, animals, plumbing and clothing.
How do enzyme products work? Sannitree’s enzymologist, Rupert Jackson explains.
“They are formulated from selected enzymes and micro-organisms that stimulate and enhance the natural decomposition process of waste organic matter without causing environmental harm.
“They come from freeze-dried powder from which the granular form is produced. Water is added and they become powerful microbial soup, which feeds off the nutrients and pollutants in the water. The bacterial broth literally eats the problem away!”
The bacterial element is particularly effective, explains Jackson. Given the ideal conditions of food and temperature which is precisely what a sewer could provide in a temperate climate, bacteria is able to divide into two identical cells every 30 minutes. This is extremely fast and the exponential result of this is that one single cell could multiply – in just 24 hours – to 140 million cells, which results in a rapid evisceration of the waste – including the unpleasant odours. Moreover the equation is perfectly balanced, as the bacteria will only multiply while there is waste to feed off.
In many rural areas homeowners and farmers, hospitals, schools and industry live and work where there is no mainline sewerage. The next best is the septic tank, which acts as a natural digester of human and domestic waste. These wastes are broken down biologically over a period of days and the resulting liquid percolates out of the system to the soak-away area. Pit or earth toilets properly treated will help prevent the spread of disease,” adds Jackson. “This process of breaking down, liquefying and deodorising is accomplished by a combination of enzymes and micro organisms, but the natural process can be easily upset. As soon as this happens a thick crust forms across the surface of the tank starving the aerobic bacteria of oxygen and allowing a fast build up of sludge on the bottom of the tank.
Over-use of chlorinated disinfectants, bleaches, and detergents can upset the system by killing the micro organisms that actually do the work.
100% Environmentally friendly bio-enzyme products have been found to be invaluable to governments struggling with pollution and health problems. The most popular is a formulation that reduces odours and also rapidly dissolves waste in pit toilets, thereby extending the life of the pit. A mere 100 grams a month is concentrated enough to treat a septic tank or pit toilet of an average family.”
In Cape Town, these formulations are constantly tested against the best products from around the world and have always been proven to be more effective and active.
A remarkable experiment took place in Kenema in the teaming refugee camps of Eastern Sierra Leone recently. While Oxfam UK had for two years implemented a disciplined water and sanitation programme in the camps with the objective of reducing and controllingtoilets. We have letters of congratulation from the Air Police Station and Marine Police.”
In conclusion, it is clear that as environmentalism becomes increasingly important more and more governments will take notes of this efficient, safe and environmentally sound way of disposing of waste and improving public health. If enzyme-based products had been more widely used the great cholera epidemics of India and other developing countries could possibly have been avoided. Let’s do our planet a good service!
